Thread: Coding Fractures

    Default Coding Fractures

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient was seen in our ED for fx of ankle. Patient at that time was put in a walking boot. Our ED coded 99284. The hospital also owns the clinics. Patient comes in for f/u up fx from ED. Provider looks at ankle tells patient to keep elevated and re xray in two weeks. I can't see where this would be fx care. No manipulation was done and he came with a walking boot and left with the same walking boot. Would I just code a regular office charge?

    If the hospital owns the clinic it will be post op care Cpt.99024 with Dx.v54.9.

    Default Fracture

    But the ED only coded emergency care. No fracture care code was charged for in the ED.

    I would just charge the E/M.
